The Information Management Technical Conference (IMTC) is taking place this week in Bangalore, India. Two of my colleagues, Susan Dykman and Bonnie-Lynn Murphy, are providing free certification testing for attendees. I've arranged for Shroff Publishers and Distributors Private Limited to set up a bookstore on site so we can showcase the large number of Information Management books that we have available to the Indian population.
Vineet Mishra, one of the attendees... has told me that the conference is quite useful and that he was amazed at the number of books that are available. One thing that I should make clear... these books are not just available to conference attendees, but we have them available in India... all the time. Just a URL away.
You may buy IBM Press books directly from Pearson Education India. Here you'll find primarily DB2 V8 editions of books, but soon the DB2 9 books will be available as well.
If you want printed IBM Redbooks at a very good price, see Shroff Publishing - Printed IBM Redbooks. Shroff Publishers is also selling the complete set of DB2 9 Certification Study Guides.
Please pass this information onto anyone who thinks that there is a lack of retail books to support DB2.... I'm trying to get every possible resource made available throughout the world!
